Thankfully, new studies now support the effectiveness of chiropractic care for addressing and reducing certain physical symptoms that are commonly linked to depression and/or anxiety.
Some of the physical symptoms associated with anxiety and depression include headaches or migraines, fatigue, insomnia, muscle tension and stiffness.
Luckily, chiropractic care takes a holistic approach to helping patients by creating the right mind-body balance.
Here are a 3 ways chiropractic care helps patients with physical symptoms connected with depression and/or anxiety.
1. Chiropractic adjustments trigger positive hormones. Since spinal health influences almost every region of your body, studies show that after getting a chiropractic adjustment, your body triggers an increase in hormones involved in positive nervous system functioning.
2. Chiropractic care helps you get to sleep. Insomnia is often a symptom of anxiety and/or depression. Studies report that some chiropractic manipulation improves patient sleep patterns.
3. Chiropractic care relieves tension, stiffness and headaches. Patients who suffer with anxiety and/or depression also experience muscular tension. Chiropractic care can aid in reducing tension and stiffness, as well as help relieve tension headaches or migraines.
If you or a loved one is looking for relief from mental health symptoms, chiropractic care is a proven method that will improve your quality of life.
Make chiropractic a regular health habit for the whole family to ensure your spines and nervous systems are working the best they can.
